C. E. Webber

From Tardis Wiki, the free Doctor Who reference

C. E. Webber (9 April 1909- June 1969[2][3]) or Cecil Edwin Webber, was a BBC staff writer assigned to work on the initial development of Doctor Who. None of his work appeared on-screen, but on internal BBC documentation he was credited as the co-writer of the first episode of the first serial, An Unearthly Child. However, Webber was instrumental in shaping the core structures of the program at an early stage, including such elements as the composition of the TARDIS crew and suggesting basic ideas for these characters. None of his scripts were used in the eventual program, though he is nonetheless sometimes referred to as a co-creator of Doctor Who: on the initial format documents and writers' guide for the series, it is stated that the format and characters were created by Webber, Donald Wilson and Sydney Newman.
